QE package performs calculation with periodic cell.
if you want to do non-periodic calculations , you should
set up supercell with large vacuum seperations between
the periodic images.
With respect to carbon nanotubes,
you can define ibrav to 6 with certain values for celldm(1) and celldm(3),
such as celldm(1)=47.243171944358878, celldm(3) =0.1704 for zigzag
nanotube. If you want to simulate finite carbon nanotubes, what you need
is to define some value along longitudinal direction.
